    " Morris really keeps you hooked in to events with fascinating anecdotes and you absorb the history, occasionally stopping to think about what's going on. Thoroughly enjoyed it and have part 2 pending. "

    " One of the all-time great reads. This first book of the triolgy takes us through the early years of Britain's colonial expansion and purported glory. It reads like a great adventure novel. "
